The only thing that can save anyone is if the car is being driven at a speed at which it can be controlled. From the looks of it, the Swift has smashed/ tboned the trailer. No way that ABS could have helped here.
RIP to the deceased and hope that some other learn from this accident and drive better.

The trailer was occupying the entire carriage width of the road. The accident seems to have happened as the driver didnt see the trailer. I am surprised as that area is usually lit decently, if not well lit. If you notice the smashed car, it is head on. If the driver had tried to brake late, the impact would have been a little sideways. Though at such speeds, it is doubtful if that would have saved anyone.

Yes, and that is one of the key reasons for road rage. It is usually a paradox because deep down one of them knows its their mistake but is not willing to admit it. On the contrary this comes out as rage?

From what I read, it seems the driver didn't see the trailer in time, and the car went underneath it. Since the time was 2AM at night when the accident happened, it's possible that the driver dozed off at the wheel and by the time he saw the trailer (maybe without lights) it was too late.

So Sleep (maybe fatigue) + late night (2AM) + high speed (maybe) = very deadly combination.

You may try what we did in our locality. I cant name the exact place due to legal issues. Our main road is a divided road, divided by median stones. Instead of taking a U turn at the next signal, transport tempo wallas remove a few median stones and perform illegal U turns, blocking the entrance of our colony. Inspite of repeated replacement of stones, stationing a security guard, police action, this menace continued. What we did is every day early morning, we showered the illegal median opening with rusted nails and broken glass. When a couple of idiots got their tyres shredded and were stranded, this problem stopped. Simple and effective solution to handle Idiots

Suprising from the report is this line : Ayush was arrested from the spot, but also immediately given bail.

After collision with speeding BMW, this car blew up | NDTV.com

====================

They keep petty thieves in custody for days, and a man can walk off after such a gruesome accident ( not blaming anyone, as the details are not clear) , in minutes ??

Is it that easy to kill and get bailed out ?

The issue is irresponsible drivers would make a brand of vehicle itself on the wrong side of law, after such incidents I have seen myself being checked numerous times just because I am driving a BMW, imagine such powerful vehicles being driven on road by a friend who is out to test the vehicle and that too a BMW not owned by him, and after the accident it is not the irresponsible driving of the driver but the brand which is being tarnished, sad!

Why did JVLR give headache once again today? Spotted this in the afternoon. The tempo seemed to be coming in reverse direction and caused the whole situation with the Swift getting damaged in process. The whole road was a mess in the afternoon with no proper traffic management, the police arriving to the scene later and Swift being towed away much after, lot of tussle seemed to be happening between the Swift and tempo guys.

"coming back from get together"
One thing caught my attention, how can a car catch fire after an impact, I think this is one of the basic things that should be tested in case of impacts.

In a case of crash, forget how good the crush zones are if the vehicle catches fire, that is the end of story.

My guess maybe unapproved CNG kit, in Delhi a lot of these cars have unapproved CNG kits

The Eeco/ Versa have fuel tanks under the driver's seat, & inlet between the front door & rear slider, where apparently the BMW hit.

It could be a case of either fuel (Petrol/ CNG) catching fire due to sparks caused by the violent crashing of the metals. But, Eecos are more sold with the factory fitted CNG kits in Delhi NCR (and CNG does not catch fire unless there is a spark, akin to petrol, unlike diesel), & hence, are as safe as the petrol ones.

The bike fellow banged the beat and a BUS (some private company bus) banged the bike fellow. He was crushed between the bust and the Beat. I am still shaking as I report this. Possibly the bike guy lost his life all because of the moronic activity of that Maroon Cedia. I got that guy, I asked him what did he do, his answer was "I gave the indicator". I was in a state of shock, didn't argue with him. Went to the cop, asked him if he needs me to be there at the police station, he asked me to leave since I wasnt directly involved with the bike guy.

Here is the pic of what is left out of the boot of my car

have an update on this from a good friend of mine (thanks Santosh). there were no fatalities (thank God for that)!

an account from one of the bikers involved in the crash.
